Ed and Claire, married for forty years and retired from farming, drive out to their mailbox every day. Every day Ed swerves their pickup toward the mailbox as if distracted then swerves back at the last moment. Claire always acts startled, and they laugh. One day Ed doesn't swerve back, but he's the only one laughing at their wrecked mailbox.
